This gorgeous vintage c1920s cocktail ring in 18K yellow gold features a magnificent solitaire round faceted color change sapphire stone measuring 13mm (diameter) x 6.6mm (depth) for an estimated total carat weight of 8CT. The color is a dreamy blue-purple / purple-blue. Depending on the light, the color changes along the blue-purple spectrum: bluer in darker ambient light, purpler in brighter light (my observation). The inside of the band is not hallmarked but the 18K gold content has been confirmed with acid testing. The ring is English in origin.It is in excellent condition. There is some patina which can be easily cleaned off if desired. The sapphire is genuine and has been professionally verified using a presidium gem tester. I cannot detect inclusions under magnification therefore assume that the stone is synthetic / created, not earth mined.
The weight of the ring is 3.4 grams and it is a US size 8. The stone sits a full 6.8mm off the finger. The width of the band is 2.2mm at the base.
